"SSH SFTP Updater Support" is the easiest way to keep your WordPress installation up-to-date with SFTP.
Wish I had found this over a year ago when my host scrapped FTP, brilliant plugin. Works great.
After I realized that the only options there are FTP and FTPS when WordPress asked me to enter login credentials, just with a single google search I came across this wonderful plugin. You can get it with wget and unzip in the plugins directory, activate and voila.
SFTP is the only non-anonymous-user option on my WP server, this plugin solved the problem of getting/installing WP updates using SFTP.
This just made my life easier using AWS. Thanks!
We don't have FTP on our server and needed this extension. It works great!
I´m using a VPS with about 10 WordPress installs. For security reasons I´ve completely disabled FTP. With this plugin I´m still able to use WordPress auto update features. I also did a quick write up on how I install WP via SSH and as a last step I suggested installing this plugin. Many thanks to the author.
I tried installing the PECL SSH extension on my server, but hit a load of dependency problems so I gave up and tried this instead. It worked first time and I had installed another plugin via SSH from within the WordPress admin within minutes.
Thanks for this powerful plugin, it works like a charm. Nothing to setup, it just works. SFTP/SSH is the only way I can login on one of my sites, and before now I could'nt update everything automatically and some plugins therefore didn't work properly (if they make use of the update functionality).
Excellent plugin :-)
Easy to install.
Adds an option ssh to the settings location where wordpress asks for ftp connection data.
